ECS 311 - Pedagogy, Theory & Practice II
This course provides guided practice in planning, preparing, implementing, assessing and reflecting upon units of study in elementary classrooms with an emphasis on anti-oppressive education and equitable/culturally responsive practices in curriculum, instruction and assessment.
Teaching is a deeply intellectual, complex undertaking. Across all course aspects, students will inquire into learning and teaching in a complex world. Ongoing emphasis will focus on planning, assessment and understanding connections between instructional approaches, teaching roles, and working in educative and respectful ways alongside children and families of diverse backgrounds and experiences.
Extending from the analysis and priorities developed in the landmark document "Together Today for our Children Tomorrow" the course looks to critical pedagogy, constructivist psychology and Indigenous approaches to teaching and learning as key avenues to support the educational aspirations of Yukon First Nations communities and the priorities articulated by the Yukon Department of Education.
